The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party vowed not to participate "in any sit-in or protest that may lead to more confrontation," Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported on Tuesday.

It will instead "strive along with other parties to abort the sedition that the interior ministry has instigated in the country."

33 died in clashes in Tahrir square over the previous three days between police and protesters angry over continued military rule in Egypt.
